Recently, the first 700TEU pure electric container vessel N997 ordered by COSCO Shipping Development completed the four-party certification ceremony at Yangzhou COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry 2# Terminal.
The representatives of four parties, namely Shanghai COSCO Shipping Green Water Shipping Co., Ltd., Yangzhou COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry, Yangzhou Maritime Safety Administration and China Classification Society, confirmed the important date of completion of the vessel and reviewed the consistency between the vessel and the drawings at the site of the N997 vessel. The representatives of the above four parties signed the four-party certification document after completing the confirmation of the information.
The four-party certification is a milestone node in the construction completion stage of N997, signifying that the vessel is completed within the scope of statutory inspection by the maritime safety administration, and is an important supporting document for applying for the Certificate of Nationality and Certificate of Ownership of the vessel. At this point, N997 is well-positioned to contribute to the green and high-quality development of China's golden water way of Yangtze River with the capacity of COSCO Shipping Development.
The ship, measuring 119.8 meters in length and 23.6 meters in beam, is powered by 36 interchangeable marine containerized batteries, which can hold over 800 new energy vehicles. The ship has the greatest battery capacity in the entire world, which is refilled via a movable power exchange system that resembles a box.
